Stubby Overmire

The 5’7″ 170-lb Stubby went 9-9 with four saves for the 1945 World Champion Tigers. He started and lost Game Three of the ’45 Series, 3-0, as Detroit was one-hit by the Cubs Claude Passeau. Never a flamethrower, Overmire twice won 11 games for Detroit (in 1944 and 1947) before moving on to the Browns after the 1949 season.
